Shortest and Longest Courses
Hey guys! I had an idea to see how long each of Duolingo's courses for English speakers were. So here they are! I ordered them from shortest to longest. You might be surprised at the second one; I know I was. At the ending I also included my lists for courses for Spanish and Portuguese speakers. This is also my first post, by the way!
For English Speakers
- Urkranian-51 (BETA)
- Vietnamese-84 (BETA)
- Welsh-99 (BETA)
For Spanish Speakers
For Portuguese Speakers
Thanks! I've always been curious in the length of the courses. However, as this is the number of skills some courses may actually have more lessons than others which would mean they are longer. For example, I know Esperanto has a fair amount of 8-10 lesson skills whereas other languages have a lot of under 5 lesson skills. But it is still interesting to see the amount of skills in each tree. Will be helpful when deciding future courses.
Wow. That is a huge addition - almost a 50% increase in the number of skills. Lots of new stuff to work on - you have a lot of good work to do to get that tree golden again but your english will improve a lot in doing so I am sure. I am a native english speaker and after completing the spanish tree (which I keep golden). I decided a month or so ago to do the reverse tree (spanish to english) and I do not recall there being so many skills then. So I think you must be right about them just adding a lot more. I am very glad that I am doing the reverse tree - it has a lot of things not in the 'regular' tree and is already very challenging even though I have only completed about 30 skills so far.
yea.. I have started doing the new ones.. and they seem harder than the old ones.. I think it was around 25 or so that were added.. i still have about 16 to do but they are slow going..
I try to keep my spanish, english and italian trees all gold while i work on the new lessons.. and some days it is all I can do to keep the trees gold and can't move forward.
Once I did a post which included the amount of lessons from spanish as well https://www.duolingo.com/comment/23545752/Number-of-lessons-for-each-course-taught-from-Spanish .
I am trying to find an updated post which include the new languages. It seems the tendency it is to do shorter new trees.
